Football has been sensationally globalised over the years and there have been several investors and commercials interested to be associated with the beautiful game.
Meanwhile, we have watched several sensational commercials made particularly by Nike and Adidas over the years that certainly deserve the acclaim of one of the best football advertisements ever.
Here we take a look at top 10 football ads:
10. ‘Write the Future’, Nike in 2010.
Nike will dominate this list with their evergreen attempt to include football’s great stars in their ads and their ad story writer certainly knows how to create masterpieces. This ad has everything to it, with realistic touches to the real meaning of football and what it really means to lives of several people. Well done Nike!

Second Nike ad to be in our list. This ad features world’s most popular league, Premier League with several Premier League stars featuring including Cristiano Ronaldo. Director Guy Ritchie surely did lots of homework before making this ad.
8. ‘Good vs Evil’, Nike, 1996
Samsung tried to create a new thing in the football world by introducing their “World XI” vs Aliens Classic promotion. But Nike did it before it was cool.
Featuring one of the best defenders ever, Paolo Maldini along with former Manchester United captain, Eric Cantona. Weird but still great.
7. ‘Medieval football’, Pepsi, 2004
What do you do when your village has been looted by hordes of barbarians emptying your hidden cans of Pepsi? Well, world football’s famous man David Beckham with his team of legendary players will come to save your village out.
6. Galaxy 11
Probably one of football’s greatest promotion campaign, Galaxy 11 was quite a hit for Samsung as they promoted their latest phone product through a brand new style.

5. Nike Football: Dare to Zlatan
One of football world’s hero right now, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is known for his arrogance and self-confidence. But what defines this man is his excellent professionalism. Do you agree Zlatan?
4. Adidas: The Dream
One of the best Adidas ads ever, The Dream is a masterpiece.

3. Scorpion KO’, Nike, 2002
Ever heard of a cage match in WWE? Here’s Nike presenting it to the football world. Eric Cantona hosts an exclusive cage match between football’s greatest stars as Nike present you with a brand new dimension of ads based upon football.
2. Nike – The Airport
Regarded as the Godfather of football commercials, this football ad features one of the most skillful Brazilian teams ever produced with quite a dramatic ad presentation. Simply fantastic!
1. Nike Last World Cup Commercial 2014 ft. Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Rooney, Ibrahimović, Iniesta
One of my favourite commercials and this yet again comes from Nike. This was Nike’s official World Cup commercial and they certainly made one of the best animated advertisements ever. Featuring several football stars, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar Jr., Rooney, Ibrahimovic and Iniesta, this Nike ad showpieces an example of football clones playing against their real self but like always, Brazilian Ronaldo does the trick for actual footballers.
